Background


Following a sold-out run in 2017, and ahead of a national tour, Oladipo Agboluaje's smash-hit comedy returns to Arcola for three weeks only.

Synopsis


'Packed with killer lines and comic characters' (Exeunt), this new play from the winner of the Alfred Fagon Award for playwriting is a timely satire on the state of populism in our politics.


Patrice Naiambana (The Secret Lives of Baba Segi's Wives) returns as the rabble-rousing Greatness Ogholi in Rosamunde Hutt's acclaimed production.


As time runs out to build a coalition, can Greatness win power without losing his integrity?


Could this be the beginning of a new Nigeria?
